Welcome! I'm Shawna, an on-location natural light photographer from Kent, WA serving the greater Seattle and South Sound area. My passion is for birth photography! In birth or family sessions, I strive to capture details and the spontaneous moments that truly reflect the beauty in your life, and that you will treasure for ever. Sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy my musings, or better yet - pop me an email and introduce yourself. I love meeting new people!

The Engagement Mini



Lauren and Brian are engaged! I happen to know Lauren through knitting and was so excited when she shared the big news. A Holiday Mini Session turned out to be just what they needed for engagement photos!



The rain had JUST stopped before their shoot, so I ran right over from the cafe session I was doing to meet them at the park. The trees were still sneezing on us as we tromped up and down the muddy hills, and these guys were superstars about it!



Apart from all the love in the air, my favorite thing about engagement sessions is getting a glimpse of just how gorgeous the bride will be. Lauren was absolutely beautiful, and I cannot wait to see her on her wedding day.

Brian's daughter, Elaine, joined us as well. She is so sweet and so funny, and I wished I'd had an entire session with them together. They're such a fun group. Thanks so much for a great mini session!




***Don't forget to leave them good wishes here on the blog! When this post reaches 20 comments, they get a free 8x10. Woohoo!!***

P.S. Next week is a great big week - two chances to join me in Seattle at Artist & Craftsman. Tuesday at 5:30 for the first of three photo classes and again on Friday for the opening of the U-District Art Walk!

P.P.S. Who's as excited as I am about Harry Potter? Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

You two look great together! Those are the exact words Brian wrote in our wedding card almost 5 years ago. I absolutely loved it and will never forget it. It couldnt be more true for you two now! So many congratulations to you!
